TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taiwan Sunday marked the first anniversary of an explosion which killed 15
and injured hundreds at a water park as victims and their relatives demanded justice for those responsible.
Just one organizer of the party at the park which ended in disaster has been sentenced so far.
Hundreds of survivors and relatives gathered for a memorial concert in Taipei to remember the dead and express their gratitude to medical, social and charity workers.
Almost 500 were injured in the blast at Formosa Fun Coast outside Taipei, when clouds of multi-colored corn starch sprayed on revelers at a “color party” ignited due to heat from stage lights.
The park had rented out its premises to an events company for the party.
Horrific video footage showed partygoers — mostly aged between 18 and 25 — screaming as they tried to escape the raging flames. [FULL STORY]
